    Just want to share that after struggling with GHA for almost three months the monster has been beaten. It is one of the best feelings in the world! (non reefers might think I am slightly crazy :)
    What did I use/do:
    Red Sea NO3PO4 algea control
    Dose with Stability after each waterchange (I think this made the difference).
    Change RO water supplier.

    Yip, had the same experience.

    Now through a few Bio Cubes in and you can wean it off the NO3PO4 or decrease the amount dosed.

    damn you tank is looking stunning @Oopkrane! i am battling with a bit of GHA at the moment and dosing Red Sea NO3PO4 and my nitrates have hit the floor. I am really impressed with the stuff and the algea is slowly starting to subside, so i am hoping it will gone shortly.
